Title: Development of an ``intelligent grinding wheel`` for in-process monitoring of ceramic grinding. Semi-annual report {number_sign}4

Abstract

The overall objective of this project is to develop sensor-integrated ``intelligent`` diamond wheels for grinding of ceramics. Such wheels will be ``smart`` enough to monitor and supervise both the wheel preparation and grinding processes without the need to instrument the machine tool. Intelligent wheels will utilize re-useable cores integrated with sensors: to measure the acoustic emission (AE) and grinding force. Signals from the sensors will be transmitted from a rotating wheel to a receiver by telemetry. Wheels will be ``trained`` to recognize distinct characteristics associated with truing, dressing and grinding. This overall project is divided into six tasks as follows: (1) development of miniaturized sensors and data transmission system; (2) wheel design and sensor configuration; (3) calibration of the sensor integrated wheel; (4) training of the intelligent wheel; (5) grinding tests; and (6) prototype demonstration. The technical progress is summarized in this report according to the tasks. All activity during this period has been concerned with the first two interrelated tasks, which need to be completed before undertaking the remaining tasks.
